The Independent Election Commission of Afghanistan (IEC) officials are saying that 4,400 sets of biometrics identity verification system have been received for the upcoming parliamentary elections.
The officials showcased the newly-received systems in the presence of media outlets today.
The IEC officials further added that the remaining equipment for the activation of biometrics system would be delivered within the next seven days.
The head of the Central Statistics Organization confirmed that further equipment would be delivered within the next seven days to activate the biometrics system for the parliamentary elections, including the central servers for storing the biometrics data of the voters.
This comes as the Chief Executive of the National Unity Government Abdullah Abdullah had earlier said the government is committed to organize a free, fair, and transparent election.
A number of political parties, including the Grand National Coalition, consisting of political parties, had earlier closed the offices of the Independent Election Commission (IEC) in some provinces.
The supporters of the coalition had said the step was taken after the government and the election commission failed to positively respond to their demands.
They had also warned that the election offices in all provinces would be closed if the government and election commission did not respond positively to their demands.
The Grand National Coalition were demanding the registration of the voters using biometrics system while monitoring of the elections process was also among the key demands of the political parties.
